took a tumble. both the president and governor romney reacted to the report during stops on the campaign trail this morning. >> we made real progress, but we are here today because we know we've got more work to do. >> unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. think of that. >> and joining any now is "newsweek" columnist zachary caribel. let's get your analysis of the numbers. >> unemployment ticked up, but statistically it's a nonfactor. it's been where it is now for the past six, seven, eight months. it doesn't matter who is elected on tuesday. that's likely where we are. it's the only more than silver lining is you have moderate job creation. i think no one would prefer having less than 171,000 jobs created in a month. that's where we are right now. >> the anticipation was 125,000 job woos would be added. it's so intriguing the dynamics playing out in the northeast with sandy. when we started with a big calendar ticking down the job reports and the one right before the election, there was some analysis this would be big. it's not. >> one thing th
. and also, you had gm and chrysler auto executives both coming out and condemning mitt romney. so the people who should naturally be supporting mitt romney in the last week of the campaign, they're actually supporting barack obama. and that's got to hurt. >> all right. thank you so much. i really appreciate y'all coming on. we'll see you in the next few days. thank you. >>> and developing news right now that we just referenced, janet napolitano is on the ground right now in new york city as major problems persist after hurricane sandy. lines two miles long just to get gas. >>> and we're told within the last hour, there's a four-hour traffic jam in the lincoln tunnel. we'll get a live update for you. >>> plus, congressman todd akin was abandoned by the national gop establishment over his, quote, legitimate rape comments. but now akin is putting hundreds of thousands of dollars into a major ad blitz. the question is where is the money coming from? it is just one of the things we thought you should know, and you can joinous conversation on twitter. you can find us @tamronhall and @newsnation.

. before the storm delivered both campaigns this curveball, if you will, mitt romney picked up up a key endorsement from t"the des moines register" that says romney offers a fresh economic position. it's the first support of a republican candidate since nixon. joining me from washington is dominico. normally we would say a hard turn from weather to politics, but i said earlier sandy is the third-party candidate a lot of people have been looking for in that this storm has greatly impacted the travel schedules and what we're seeing including the news coverage of this "des moines register" endorsement which would be a headline today aathp point. how impactful is it when you combine the storm coverage and does it matter what the newspaper editorial board said. >> it won't get the national coverage it would have gotten the day after the weekend, but it is still going to be a big issue in iowa. it's the largest paper in iowa. now all four of the major papers in iowa have all endorsed mitt romney. so i do think that as the president's been looking for -- to stop some of the mitt romney's momen
me quickly about the perils for both of them. obviously, the president is the president. this is his responsibility, to have the concern of the american people on the forefront. what does governor romney do or say, other than this point that he's trying to be sense and pull off the campaign trail tomorrow and not today? >> it's no accident that bill clinton was in orlando. that's a key swing area right in the heart of that i-4 corridor. there was a cnn poll out today showing a 50/49 race between the two sides. pretty much a dead-even race. missing out on a day or two to get people out to the polls can really hurt both campaigns. mitt romney has to walk this fine line and so does the president not wanting to look too political in a situation like this when you could, as bill karins mentioned, see people out of power in the millions potentially for the next few days. >> let's bring chip in on this. you don't want to look too political, but one thing some have noted is governor romney made a couple of phone calms to virginia governor bob mcdonald and chris christie, two republican gover
areas of help. they've been to the point of contact for everybody. both campaigns, the romney and obama campaign, have been directing people to the red cross website to help. i want to give you also a readout on the call that the president had about two hours ago with governors and mayors in the affected areas. a couple things came out of it. in the official read from the white house they don't say which states were offering help to the states that needed it the most, but i can tell you new york and new jersey are the ones that are feeling overwhelmed. they are looking for more help and assistance. all of the other governors in all of the other states surrounding connecticut, massachusetts, maryland, virginia, pennsylvania, you name it all on the call were offering assistance and help to new york and new jersey. it sort of narrows it down. i know there's questions how hard hit is connecticut and pennsylvania. they're all -- they're all in tough shape, but all of those governors expressed optimism they can handle this disaster relief. new york and new jersey, very overwhelmed now looking
states but that's an all-important state for both campaigns to win this election, mitt romney is almost going to have to win ohio if not he's going to have to run the table everywhere else. this is a good piece of news for the president out of ohio today. virginia and florida just too close to call. well inside that margin of error. could go either way. but for all the talk you have heard of mitt romney's momentum since the first debate in denver, that fateful first debate, it looks like from this poll the momentum has either stopped or slowed. that, of course, is not the message that the campaign has been putting out over the past couple of days. >> you talk about sandy. there's a big picture of the day will be governor chris christie and president obama together surveying the damage. again, so many people have remarked it's a remarkable sight. i'm not quite sure if it is and seems like common sense. we know where governor christie is based and there are people in need. unlike michael bloomberg when's not planning to run for an office we know of in the immediate future. governor christ
a difference in polls from the nbc marist poll and local polls show romney is up more than we're indicating. >> first of all, i think both sides genuinely think they're going to win or certainly think they have a great chance of winning. that said, pennsylvania has always been fool's gold for republicans. it looks tempting at the end. they might go for it. >> sounds good on paper. >> but they don't get it. now if the new nbc marist poll is correct about florida, florida can decide it before we even, you know, do the late-night counting of the absentee ballots out of cleveland. i mean because florida, if that goes for president obama, that's pretty much the story, i think. >> mr. caputo, let me bring new you've in on this. the poll shows two point ahead for governor romney in florida, that within the margin of error. my team and i were struck with looking at the lines of people early voting in that state today. >> well, those lines are really going to be the indication of how this campaign is going to go. we've had gangbusters early voting turnout in florida. about two million people in a we
